TouchTunes Celebrates Upcoming Solar Eclipse
On Monday, August 21st, 2017, a total solar eclipse will sweep across America causing temporary darkness for many in its path. This celestial event occurs when the moon passes between the sun and the Earth, blocking all or part of the sun depending on one’s viewing location. TouchTunes is encouraging bar-goers to celebrate this astronomical event with a themed playlist “Solar Eclipse 2017” which includes songs like Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun,” Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire,” Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun,” King Harvest’s “Dancing In The Moonlight,” Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine,” and many more. The playlist will be free as the eclipse passes over the United States, approx. 12-3PM EST, for patrons who play a song from promotional banners on TouchTunes jukeboxes. The eclipse is estimated to be experienced by tens of millions of people and has been predicted to be the most photographed and shared event in human history. No matter where music fans are located, they’re sure to celebrate this huge event with the perfect song on TouchTunes.
